Congratulations to Lord Malcolm Pearson, new leader of England’s UKIP party. Last night I posted a video of the former leader of UKIP blasting the EU parliament and rightfully so. Lord Pearson is just the man to help British Railways find the tracks they left so long ago.
Lord Pearson of Rannoch has been elected the new leader of UK Independence Party.
He will succeed Nigel Farage, who is standing down to focus on running for Parliament at the next election.
UKIP came second to the Conservatives in June’s European elections and is hoping to build on this success.
Lord Pearson defeated MEPs Gerard Batten, Mike Nattrass and Nikki Sinclaire, and Alan Wood, a councillor from Wiltshire, in the contest.
He gained nearly half of the approximately 9,900 votes cast by UKIP members.
Lord Pearson, who defected from the Conservatives in 2007, said it was an “enormous honour” to lead the party.
